as the nra and you cannot contribute? >> not at all, part of what we put in the letter to vice president biden who by the way did not blame the industry for violence i note in his remarks. as part of the letter to biden, we said that even if we are not part of the problem, we are willing to be part of the solution. we are interested in contributing to -- to reducing america's problem with violence. and some of the things that we suggest are games are powerful teaching tools and then the teaching potential of games has not been well explored at all. there are some people working in the video game field, some of our members who are working on games for conflict resolution, games for anti-bullying. there are people working on health games to help people who have to take -- who have mental problems to make sure they stay on their medication to gameify people staying, helping themselves to remain safe and to not be a danger. there are many, many things that the gaming industry wants to do to help with this problem. one issue though is that the government has been very slow to fund gaming tech
the nra and representatives from the entertainment industry this evening. kathleen sebelius wills attend some of the meetings. it is a big step for president obama's new gun violence task force launched in the wake of the massacre at sandy hook elementary. but it did not necessarily leave many with high expectations. businesses that sell a lot of guns like walmart will also be in on some meetings. those groups are more likely to be influenced by the nra since they're making a big profit off those firearms. and they do not want to appear too entrenched in the white house's anti-gun push. >>> walmart says after the shooting, guns are now one of their highest-selling items. while it does want to help the administration, when that starts to contradict with sales that's where the help stops. the nra obviously has a lot of money and therefore a lot of power going into these talks but gabby giffords' new anti-gun group is looking to counteract that. she and her husband mark kelly kick started a campaign this week that they're calling common sense measures to curb gun violence. now, they're hopi
that the nra and its affiliates push so hard against. >> all they have to do is just accept reasonable restrictions. nobody is trying to take away your gun. nobody is trying to take away your right to go hunting or target shooting or have protection in your home. simply we're trying to have some reasonable things so people aren't killed. >> today the mayor's anti-illegal guns group is going on air with an ad that invokes sandy hook and features the mother of the youngest victim of that tucson shooting. >> 20 heart-broken families lost a child in the sandy hook school shooting. i know how much it hurts. my 9-year-old daughter was murdered in the tucson shooting. i have one question for our political leaders. when will you find the courage to stand up to the gun lobby? whose child has to die next? >> indeed. the same question could be asked by a mother and father of one of the latest shooting victims in our daily tally of gun casualties, including a 15-year-old girl shot and killed early today in milwaukee. in maryland last night a gunman left one dead and one critically wounded before t
to get it. at today's hearing, the head of the nra actually argued we don't need any new gun laws. >> proposing more gun laws while failing to enforce the thousands we already have? it's not a serious solution for reducing crime. >> not a serious solution to reducing crime. we've heard enough from the nra. it's time they follow some simple advice from her own statement today. be bold. be courageous. we've heard enough and we've seen enough. the time is now. joining me now is lorie hauss, whose daughter, emily, survived being shot in the virginia tech massacre in 2007 and clarence page. >> lorie, let me start with you. you were at the hearing today. don't our elected leaders need to show the courage gabby showed today? >> absolutely, reverend sharpton. thanks for having me on the show. >> thank you for coming. >> frankly, we need leadership from all of our rep zen tifrs. and, you know, we demand courage from them. but, frankly, you know, it shouldn't take much courage to stand up to the nra. courage is, you know, facing down the barrel of a gun. and, you know, my daughter did that.
association which has some gun control advocates wondering why since the nra has made it clear it has no interest in supporting legislation or executive action that might help keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people. "the washington post" would argue that the administration needs the nra because of the power, at least the perceived power it still has over members of congress and ultimately it going to be a vote to turn a bill into law. this is a friends close enemies closer strategy. >>> while the white house and congress work to craft some sort of legislation on a national level, new york governor andrew cuomo wants his state to be the first to enact new gun laws in the wake of the shooting at newtown. today, he plans to propose a new restrictive assault weapons ban which would strengthen the state law already in place by covering more guns and magazines. new york one of seven states already has some sort of assault weapons ban in place. he's also looking at proposing expanding the use of mental health records and background checks and requiring recertification. we're back wit
he did. the president of the n.r.a. skipped his meeting with the vice president and afterwards they blasted the meeting. there were cameras inside the meeting but no cameras were allowed in the meeting this afternoon with the n.r.a. and other gun advocacy groups. the n.r.a. said after the meeting they won't allow gun owners to be blamed for the acts of criminals and mad men. issuing a blistering statement saying we were disappointed on how little this meeting had to do with keepinging our children safe. at a news session the vice president said the chance to save even one life justifies action with graphic comments about newtown's youngest action. >> to see kids riddled not just shot but riddled -- riddled with bullet holes in their classroom. >> biden tried to appeal to the gun rights group saying that he suicide a gun owner. he laid out ideas opposed by the group, including universal background checks not just at gun shows but all private sellers. gabby giffords are lobbying congress to enblame new rules. >> i went through a background check
-down with the nra on thursday. surn mcginnis is in washington. susan, good morning to you. >> good morning, terrell. washington officialsdy not expect he was going to win them over yesterday, but the powerful lobbying group left that meeting, determined to let it stand in the way of any new gun control measures. the meeting lasted more than an hour and a half, and afterward the nra released a statement saying it was disappointed with how little this meeting had to do with keeping our children safe and how much it had do with an agenda to attack the second amendment. nra president david keene was not in the meeting but called the meeting one-sided. >> prior to the meeting they made a number of statements in the white house they hadn't made up their mind, but after the meeting the vice president made it clear in terms of firearms they had made up their mind. >> reporter: the nra fought every one of them. at a separate meeting with hunting and wild lyre groups the vice president said there is still room to find common ground. >> even if what we do is only save one life, it makes sense, and think we ca
and the pew research center shows 60% of americans support a ban on assault weapons. we know that the nra has rejected any idea or notion of a ban on assault weapons and even some congressmen and members of the house of representatives and senate would oppose a ban on assault weapons seeing it as extreme. a few democrats used that language. nevertheless, if the president did not include a comprehensive plan which addresses this issue of high magazine -- high capacity magazines and assault weapons, telling the american public the newtown tragedy is the most difficult day of your presidency, if you don't take big action then those really are just words. >> i think that's exactly right. and i think that what you're basically saying is that part of what the president is going to announce will be symbolic and not have that great of a chance of passage and part of it will be practical measures that do have at least some slim chance of making it through this congress. you see in those polls that the idea of universal background checks and of closing the gun show loophole, a much more of a gaping exe
to compete with the nra and to support a pro reform agenda. part of the political power there is not just that gabby giffords was nearly killed in that pass shooting in tucson, but also that she and her husband are both gunowners and out and proud supporters of the second amendment. but they're nevertheless saying there needs to be reform. in fact, are saying that respect for the second amendment and reform are not incompatible things. well, today in arizona, the person who became governor once janet napolitano went to washington to become homeland secretary, the governor after janet napolitano, jan brewer gave her state of the state address, regardless of the tucson anniversary, regardless of gabby giffords, regardless of arizona's own history with gun violence, jan brewer's own treatment of that issue today in her state of the state address was that she emphatically would not be infringing on the right of law-abiding gun owners. that's all she had to say. in d.c., though, there is the previous arizona governor janet napolitano at the right hand of the vice president in this meeting abou
for the president and taxes. after releasing a ridiculous ad going after the president's children, the nra is attacking again, this time via a fund-raising email, claiming the president is raising $20 million to jam his anti-gun agenda through congress and accuses the administration of trying to quote reduce your freedom to ashes. i warns of mandatory gun confiscation, and a forced buyback program. it sounds a lot like death panels, and the president is not acting alone. president obama is working alongside his rich gun hating friends in hollywood, and michael bloomberg. they fail to mention he is also the mayor of new york city. we're back after the break. arguments to feel confident in their positions. i want them to have the data and i want them to have the passion. but it's also about telling them, you're put on this planet for something more. i want this show to have an impact beyond just informing. an impact that gets people to take action themselves. as a human being, that's really important. this is not just a spectator sport.

gun sales to go through a background check has widespread support, even the majority of nra members liking the idea, but how would background checks be implemented on private sales? as peggy fox tells us, they're already required in several states where the seller and buyer simply meet at a licensed dealer and the dealer runs the check. >> reporter: virginia tech shooting survivor collin goddard has gone undercover at gun shows across the country to show how easy it is to buy high powered firearms without a background check. >> this is exactly the problem that we want to stop. >> we bought this gun just last year at a dale city gun show with no background check. >> reporter: omar samaha whose sister rima of killed at tech believes every gun sale needs a background check. >> two people can meet online go, into a parking lot and exchange cash for the gun. there's no record of the transaction and you're selling to whoever you want. >> reporter: background checks use the fbi's date base to prevent felons, domestic abusers, serious drug abusers or those dealed dangerously mentally ill
